A loan of $850 helped to repair the roof and the part of the corridor of her housing.


Blanca Concepción's story

Blanca is 42 years old, is married and has two children; Diana is 17 years old and is studying in the second year of junior high and Emerson is 9 years old and is studying third grade. Her husband produces dairy cattle. For three years her husband has rented a small café and she has always helped him, but since April she has taken on the management of the small café together with her sister-in-law. Then her husband has completely devoted himself to taking care of his cattle. The things they most sell in the small café are pupusas [stuffed tortillas], hamburgers, milk shakes, juices, soda and snacks.

The loan that is being requested from Fundación Campo is to repair the roof and part of the corridor of her housing, because in the past rainy season she was left with leaks of water and humidity, as well as in the part of the corridor she stored merchandise for the small café and it got wet on several occasions. Because of this she wants to take advantage of the opportunity to solve the problem with the loan. In the future she would like to install a washable toilet in her house and not the latrine that is the one that she owns at this time.
